The lost City of Angels

Posted by: loona

The City of Angels lost for eternity,
A mock for Aadi Kabi’s hallowed Alkapuri.
The City of Angels gone astray.


Gone are the days of harmonious milieu
Times when angels glided with the cool breeze;
The aroma of fresh leaves and flowers;
The blushing eastern sky at the sunrise.
I seek the paradise in the mirage of my reverie;
of vivid landscape embraced by majestic mountains.
The panorama fading into horizon;
the seek lost in vain.
The City of Angels lost in eternity.


Is this my blurred vision?
I see the fire painted bloody sky;
Winter with the noxious fog of smoke and dusts.
Relentlessly, I inhale the toxic gust of air;
Mortified for every moment I breathe in;
Mortified for every moment I gulp the venomous tear;
Blazing like an effigy of regression;
Burning into ash and dust, I see
The City of Angels lost with whiff of smoke.


Invaded by fiend and zombie,
buried by their peccadillo,
The City of Angles vanished forever.
The City of Angles lost forever.

    The above poetry is an age old one, i wrote it while there was uncertainity and civil war in the country. Now, these cirumstances has changed for good with realization and positive thinking.
    I decided to post it just to break the monotony and to let the imagination wander to those goneby days. I really hope the City of Angles will rejuvinate and retain it’s peace and charm in the coming days.

    Hey Loona,

    Pls dont take it otherwise. Your poem is great. It’s always good to have bunch of comments (good or bad). :mrgreen:

    It’s awesome, it feels nice that EU Readers really read between the lines and try to make the sense out of poetries. I appreciate all the commentors for letting me know about this.
    Yes, it definately doesnot make any sense for Angles, the poetry is definately about the Lost City of Angels, ancient Kantipur City now a MetroPolitan Kathmandu.

    “a speliing mistake” or “a lot of spelling mistakes”… seems something “……” was replaced by “city of angles” :lol:

    It’s obvious that this is a spelling mistake. Good people point out the same to the author in a friendly way, fools mock.

    Great work loona – poetry is allusion-to-be-appreciated by those who love language, expression and communication delivered with passion and gust. I particularly liked the line, ” I seek the mirage in the paradice of my reverie”. Well philosiphised. Keep on writing (by the way, on a witty note, the exuding femininity was cute) – just being opinionated
